Don't speed read this book. It will give you enough to think on for several weeks and no serious business owner should be without it. Collins and his crew have put an immense amount of research and thought into the facts that they present. They identify what it takes to stay on track as a company and consistently grow. This work is replete with examples of companies that consistently outperformed their field for 15 years and they also show comparison companies that underperformed in the same fields. They also show companies that performed very well, but did not sustain that success in the long term. This is one of the best business books ever written. No hype, just solid info.

If you are good and tired of it, this may be the book that helps you get over the hump. The principles are descriptive of who the top 11 companies were and what they did, but they may be taken as foundations for decisions that become prescriptive for you. Many of the underlying principles support what Peter Drucker has been saying such as, "Get the right people. Character is more important than specific experience." Many books, but a relatively small percentage of books, are crowned as "must-read." For the business, church, educational institution, any organization, this is one of the must-reads.
